1986 ... the title of a lifetime, the one that makes you fit One Shot into the musical legend of the 80s. This single title was enough to propel the singer into the highest spheres of fame. MAS-TER-FUL !
1987 ... a quality sequel but which will not have the success of the previous steamroller. Always extremely difficult to bounce back from a title that has hit the nail on the head ...
1988 ... an unclassifiable title as well as indefinable. A style exercise halfway between Dance and the Intimist and above all which disorientates to say the least as they say ...
1989 ... and yet he hangs on and resists. We find him at the end of the decade on a rather successful title but the public has already moved on. Hard law of the trade ...
1992 ... change of decade and radical change in tone. A daring bet that unfortunately will not change the situation. When it stalled, it stalled. An end of adventure for a sympathetic artist who can always boast of having left one of the biggest Dance titles of the decade on the French side. It's already that !
